Starship announces new boy bandA new nine-member boy band from Starship Entertainment will debut within the first half of this year, the agency announced on Thursday.
“We are planning for them to make their debut this year, with Kang Min-hee and Song Hyeong-jun from X1 included as members,” the agency said in its announcement.
Kang and Song were a part of the 11-member act X1 that debuted through the fourth season of Mnet’s “Produce” audition series last year. The group disbanded last month due to the scandals surrounding the show’s producers.
“This will be the first new boy band in six years for Starship, following Monsta X. We vow to provide support to ensure that they have a successful debut,” Starship said.
The date of the debut will be announced soon.
